Nickels-Sortwell House

in Wiscasset

This mansion was built by Captain William Nickels, and is a great example of how maritime voyaging shaped Wiscasset. It's also a gorgeous example of Federal-style architecture, marked by its understated elegance and employment of symmetry. The wooden exterior is cleverly fashioned and painted to appear as stone from both the street and the water. Tours are given every half hour.
